I’ll be one of the first to admit that I like a little bit of “toilet humor” in my games. It was one of the things that attracted me to the comedy of point and click adventure Demetrios. I will also admit I found the fart and crap jokes it in to be a bit overused. That didn’t stop me from enjoying the game, though. I just found them to be a bit distracting at times.
The latest update for Demetrios announced a bit of a change in content. As of now, if you want to play through it without said toilet humor you can. When loaded up, the game will let you choose between three options. You can always play with the original “as intended” version, without any of the fart jokes, or an “in between” version that’s has them but is light on the more juvenile humor.
I’m quite fine with the middle ground option, myself. As I mentioned above, I enjoyed the game but did find that certain areas could have been better off without it. This also gives a bit more replayability in an otherwise “one off” genre. I’m definitely interested in experiencing the differences between the three versions now.
Demetrios is a game worth playing as-is, but Fabrice Breton listened to those who basically thought “less is more”. One thing that I can certainly give him credit for is being willing to cater to his fan base. Now, if you’ll excuse me I think I’ll give the other two versions a spin.
